7Seas Entertainment has launched 'The Dark Man' game for Android-based mobile devices.

The physics-based shooting game is initially available at Google’s Android marketplace.

It will be offered on Samsung App Store, LG Store and all other Android-supporting app stores and distributor networks in phases, Maruti Sanker, Managing Director of 7Seas Entertainment, has said.

Priced at $0.99, the game was played by 1.5 crore gamers online in the last one year, he claimed. The physics-based puzzle game has 30 levels. For now, it is offered for free up to 10 levels on a trial-and-buy mode.

“The player dons the role of an archer and there are different interesting targets (apples) on the characters’ heads. All a player needs to do is to shoot the apples off their heads without shooting the characters to move on to the next level,” he said.

For the quarter ended June 2012, the BSE-listed company registered a turnover of Rs 5.73 crore against Rs 3.72 crore in the same quarter last year. For 2011-12, its turnover was put at Rs 23 crore.
